  • Created discussion thread V1+70-200 f2.8 VR1
    After the unfortunate episode of dunking the V1+70-300cx in the drainage ditch I dried everything out in the airing cupboard and it all works! The V1 shutter sounds slightly different but it works ...
  • Thanks Paul and Dave, I never knew camo skins were available! It will certainly tone down the white! Good news is my V1 is working after a day in the airing cupboard!!!! The shutter sounds a little ...
  • Great tips Dave! My wife has a white V1 she doesn't use so I can use that, it does look a bit girly and wildlife will see me coming for miles! Interesting about the J5, I will give that serious ...
  • Lol! Yes Dave, I have been offered an Amazon voucher to replace the V1 with a comparable second hand one which sounds dodgy to me. Still waiting to hear about the lens and flash. Johnnie
  • I know how you felt Dave, well done for saving the camera! I was covered in dry grass which stuck to the water and mud. My iPhone and Nikon SB-N7 flash is also kaput but insurance says it is ...
  • Thanks Sonyshine, I have never made a claim before so will have to check the small print and hope I am covered. Johnnie
  • Created discussion thread V1+70-300cx swan song
    It had to happen, I fell in a drainage ditch up to my neck in water. The V1 is dead. The 70-300 won't work at all after trying to dry it out. Took the card out and I was amazed at finding my last shot!
  • Thanks Tord and Judas, the V1+70-300cx combo never ceases to amaze me, I am surprised the V1 is still going as it gets used almost every day and has never let me down, it really is built like a tank! ...
  • I use Auto ISO 400 and in good light have no need for noise reduction. When photographing insects in poor light I use fill flash, if I do get noise in the shadow areas I simply use Neat Image to ...
  • Created discussion thread Holiday snaps with the V1+70-300cx
    Just back from a few days in West Wales, I forgot my wide angle so had to stitch the castle,doh! Carew castle (4 image stitch). Grey Heron, Bosherston Lily Ponds. Large White on Purple Loosestrife. ...
  • Very nicely done! Johnnie
  • There are two types of Meike tube, one has a plastic mount, the other has a metal mount. You want the metal mount tubes. Johnnie
  • Yes they work perfectly well with those lenses, the 30-110 with 16mm Meike has a working distance of roughly a metre to 5cm at the 30mm end. Johnnie

    Girl against a blue background changed to black, toy lantern replaced with a lit real one, moon put in, mist/clouds put in with a brush in photoshop downloaded from the internet.
Noise added for effect.

  • Thanks Ivan, I have just bought the Raynox as a result of seeing your shots. Unfortunately in my haste to get to the postman I ruptured my Achilles tendon and now have my leg in plaster. No ...
